Android 13 requires a minimum of 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage

Android 13

Android 13 has recently been released and is already available for Pixel devices. Other device manufacturers are now working to bring it to their devices. Google has also raised the minimum requirements for Android 13. The company has recently confirmed the minimum RAM and storage requirements for Android phones to be eligible to get Android 13. The low-end devices running Android Go should now require 2GB for Android 13. The minimum storage requirement has also been increased to 16GB.

If your phone has less than 16GB of storage or less than 2 GB RAM, it won’t get Android 13 updates. Although most entry-level Android phones now come with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, we will see several entry-level phones running Android 12 in the coming months. Devices that don’t meet these minimum system requirements will stick to Android 12.

Android users who buy an entry-level phone don’t really care for Android updates as long as their phone is running fine. Android makers are also really slow in pushing updates. I have a OnePlus 6T that has powerful specs but OnePlus has never provided an Android 12 update to the device. The phone was released with Android 9 and received updates until Android 11.

Android OEMs promise 3 years of Android upgrades to flagship devices but mid-range devices hardly get 2 updates. So, what would you expect for entry-level devices?

Google has already resale Android 13 last month and has rolled out it to Pixel smartphones. Other OEMs are still beta testing the update and should start releasing Android 13 to their devices by the end of this year.
